Slain mayor Halili’s daughter to Duterte: Bring us justice

Jul 9, 2018 @ 13:42

The daughter of slain Tanauan City Mayor Antonio Halili is still counting on President Rodrigo Duterte to help bring to justice her father’s killer.

This after Duterte claimed the Batangas politiko was involved in the illegal drug trade.

Angeline Halili called on the President to clear her father’s name.

“Give us justice. I appeal to the President na linisin ang pangalan ng tatay ko at bigyan ng hustisya ang pagkamatay niya,” she said.

Inaasahan ka namin, Presidente. Ikaw ang hinihintay kong makarating dito (We are counting on you, Mr President. I’m waiting for you here,” she added.

But Angeline said the family suspects the government is involved in her family’s assassination.

“This is one of the greatest fears that we have to face. Sana naman hindi totoo. Isipin mo naman kung ang pamilya mo is against a very high and a very strong government, mataas ang posisyon e matakot ka na,” she said.

“You’d be helpless, but not me. I will not feel helpless, all the more I will fight back,” she added.
